Background Details

Pedro Condeso Coello harvested and processed this micro-lot on his 5 acer farm called Las Mercedes located near the community of San Ignacio in the Cajamarca region. Pedro has his own micro-mill where carefully harvested cherries are depulped, fermented, washed to remove the mucilage, and then gently dried on raised beds over a period of 18 days. While Pedro has designed farm management and post-harvest solutions to fit his needs, he also has a strong alliance to bring his coffee to the international market and earn fair prices. He started working with Aroma del Valle, an organization established to assist producers access the specialty coffee market. With the help of Aroma del Valle, Pedro and his wife have been able to pay for their three children to attend school in the city of Jaen where they have more educational opportunities.
